This post is for those who are finding it difficult to get started and want to learn to run. I'm more or less reviewing what you need to know. If you started today you will be further ahead than yesterday in your learn to run program.
Your Run/Walk Workouts...for the Procrastinator in YOU
This is your schedule tomorrow or starting next week if you want to learn to run.
Walk for 10 minutes
Start your run (Please don't go fast just run so that it is comfortable and stay at that pace.)
Sometimes we feel running has to be fast, because the word alone sounds fast. So just run slow, because for a beginner runner learning to run it can be very exasperating and challenging.
You want this to be refreshing!
- Only run for 1 minute - No more - Just 1 minute!
- Now just walk, but walk swiftly to catch your breath. You don't want your heart rate to slow down too much, so walk to recuperate for 2 minutes.
- Keep running for 1 minute and then walking for 2 minutes back and forth for about 30 minutes.
- After you are done it is good to cool down and walk comfortably for another 10 to 15 minutes. 15 minutes is best.
Don't run/walk every day. Try to do this starting on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday and one day on the weekend. If you have to change your days go for it, but for now just do it and have fun.
*If I see anybody running too fast...You know I'll tell you to slow down.
I don't want you to hate running, I want you to become a happy runner like me! Think of all those health benefits and the weight that you will lose.
Skinny legs are nice too!

This post is in Memory of Sunshine- Female Standard Poodle who died suddenly Sunday of a twisted stomach. She gives me inspiration to keep going! She was an excellent running friend!
